Region Stockholm

Sweden’s Largest Regional Health Provider Secures its Services With Increased Performance and Reliability at Lower Cost

“Before the upgrade, it was hard to imagine how we would meet the five nines availability goals we needed to reach across all our network services. But with the help or our local Fortinet team and chosen partner, not only have we achieved this, but we have future-proofed our capacity and performance requirements and have gained a level of control and visibility, which makes us confident in our ability to continue doing so.”

– Andreas Bonin, Network Specialist, Region Stockholm

 

As one of Europe’s largest healthcare providers, Region Stockholm provides high-quality care for the region’s two million citizens via a network of some 1,200 medical centers. Building on a successful cost-saving deployment of FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) at one of its trauma centers, the healthcare provider has extended the Fortinet infrastructure to all of its four hospitals and its two data centers. Managed through the Fortinet Fabric Management Center, with threat intelligence from FortiGuard Labs, the FortiGate NGFWs ensure that Region Stockholm can support a high-performance network of critical-care equipment and administrative systems alongside convenient public Wi-Fi services.
